Today we are starting Chapter 10 of Gangsta Granny - read by Ms Duncan. We hope you are enjoying the story. We sure do!
Today we would like you to continue predicting. Your job is to listen to the chapter and at the end I want you to make a prediction about what is going to happen next. You need to think about what are the next events, how will it affect the characters, how will the story change? Will there be a twist?

I love this story. Listen to and read Chapter 9 of Gangsta Granny, and then have a go at the questions underneath.
1. Italics are a special way of writing words. The letters slant forwards, to the right. Italics are used to emphasize key words and tell the reader to stress the word as they read it.
Find the seven examples of words written in italics in the text. Read the sentences out loud to hear how the italics change how the words are read.
2. Why do you think granny was known as 'The Black Cat' ?
3. There is a simile on Page 78. What animal is granny compared to when she asks Ben to keep a secret?
4. What do you think an 'oath' is? (Page 79)
5. What do you think Ben's mum and dad would say to granny if they found out that she tried to steal some jewellery from the jewellery shop.
6. Can you say, or write 1 sentence to summarize what has happened in this chapter? When you summarize a story you have to retell, or rewrite it, using your own words. You leave out most of the information and just keep the key details.
